LONDON (AP) - Keith Richards has acknowledged consuming a raft of illegal substances in his time, but this may top them all.

In comments published Tuesday, the 63-year-old Rolling Stones guitarist said he had snorted his father's ashes mixed with cocaine.

"The strangest thing I've tried to snort? My father. I snorted my father," Richards was quoted as saying by British music magazine NME.

"He was cremated and I couldn't resist grinding him up with a little bit of blow. My dad wouldn't have cared," he said. "... It went down pretty well, and I'm still alive."

Richards' father, Bert, died in 2002, at 84.

Richards, one of rock's legendary wild men, told the magazine that his survival was the result of luck, and advised young musicians against trying to emulate him.

"I did it because that was the way I did it. Now people think it's a way of life," he was quoted as saying.

"I've no pretensions about immortality," he added. "I'm the same as everyone ... just kind of lucky.

"I was No. 1 on the `who's likely to die' list for 10 years. I mean, I was really disappointed when I fell off the list," Richards said.

I think it's weird that he did this within the last 4-5 years, since his dad died in 2002. It's sort of an interesting idea, though.

My father died a year ago today, and he was cremated due to dying in Nicaragua and complications with trying to get the whole body back to the States. I don't think this is going to go on my list of ideas by which to remember him, though.

Seriously, how screwy do you have to be to do this?

Then how screwy do you have to be to reveal you did it to the paying public?

Creepy, even if he's just saying that.

His dad died in 2002. So he did this at some point within the past few years, when he was at least in his late 50s.

I really don't know what's more disturbing - the idea that someone his age would do that in the first place, or the idea that he'd actually discuss it openly.

Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay sick and creepy.

I remember your family ordeal man. One of the most gripping and ultimately sad things I've read. Your pop ended his time here in an admirable fashion. My respects to you and yours on the one year anniversary.

Apparently Keith was kidding. Either that, or he's still got enough brain cells left to realize what a f#cking idiot he was for saying this shit.

Rolling Stone Keith Richards Denies Snorting Father's Ashes

Wednesday, April 04, 2007

Keith Richards (javascript:siteSearch('Keith Richards');) was joking when he claimed to have snorted his father's ashes along with cocaine, a spokesman said Wednesday.
"It was an off-the-cuff remark, a joke, and it is not true. File under April Fool's joke," said Bernard Doherty of LD Communications, which represents the Rolling Stones.
Doherty declined to say any more about why Richards made the statement in an interview with NME, a pop music magazine.
"The strangest thing I've tried to snort? My father. I snorted my father," the 63-year-old guitarist was quoted as saying.
"He was cremated and I couldn't resist grinding him up with a little bit of blow. My dad wouldn't have cared ... It went down pretty well, and I'm still alive."
The comment was "Said in jest ... Can't believe anyone took [it] seriously," his manager told MTV News.
Richards' father, Bert, died in 2002, at 84.
Richards, one of rock's legendary wild men, also told NME that his survival was the result of luck, and advised young musicians against trying to emulate him.
"I did it because that was the way I did it. Now people think it's a way of life," he was quoted as saying.
"I've no pretensions about immortality," he added. "I'm the same as everyone ... just kind of lucky.
"I was No. 1 on the 'who's likely to die' list for 10 years. I mean, I was really disappointed when I fell off the list," Richards said.

I don't care if he was kidding or not, it's still psychotic. Is one of us shocked that his PR person comes back afterwards and says it was a joke? Uh - what do you expect the PR person to say?

I have a girl friend... a friend who is a girl that is... who seems to have a death wish and has made it clear that she wants to be cremated and snorted when she dies. She'd like to be shared too.

About the craziest thing that I know for someone to have done with a relative's ashes:

They reloaded shotgun shells. So they mixed in the ashes with the shot with a whole box of reloads then used the box up on opening day of duck season. It was the person's request.

I'm not even a hunter but I understand that request.

I don't get snorting the ashes though. Not at all.

My request is that my organs be donated and my carcass disposed of as economically as possible. There's no need to become an economic burden on my family in death - even if that means letting college kids hack me up. Take that money and buy a big screen or something.

Personally, I want my ashes scattered across Sylvan Lake in the Black Hills. And even though I'll be dead, I certainly hope no drug-addicted asshole (be it a relative, friend or stranger) uses my charred remains to cut friggin coke.

This story continues to disgust me.
